5- Doors and Windows: - PVC: Calculate an average of about $ 1,000 per window, installed. - Aluminum: Calculate an average of about $ 1500 per window, installed. 6- Exterior siding: You can opt for several types of exterior siding.

All renovation projects are subject to a price fluctuation of more or less 10-15%. This is due to surprises, unforeseen events and / or changes along the way. When comparing quote and choosing a contractor, it is tempting to use the services of a contractor that costs as little as possible, but it is important to carefully evaluate these and make sure the same values ​​are compared.
